Hello dimers,
Need advice on replacing my maruti Suzuki swift battery.
Petrol, lxi optional, 30k kms, 5 year old

It’s my first car and don’t want to get ripped off by service center or mechanics.
During lockdown battery got drained and now getting discharged frequently.
Looking for suggestions for good battery and appropriate cost
Thanks

Exide or amaron. Buy the latest manufacturing date product. Ask around a few shops in your locality to get a good idea about the best price they can offer.

You can install it yourself with a plier. Just be a bit careful and don’t be scared of some sparks (wear some gloves if you are afraid). Make sure the terminals are connected properly.

Get it charged externally, approach a trusted battery technician. Your best bet would be a local repair person dealing with inverters/batteries. Check if it will suffice. A few repair folks does discharge test to see it’s really holding charge.

If nothing works, buy a battery of similar rating from a manufacturer of your choice. You can also trade your old battery for certain percentage discount

Is this a petrol car or diesel?
How many kms have you driven your car?
Which brand battery are you using ?
Is it more than 4 years old?

Stay away from diy if you’re not into this kind of stuff or if you don’t have all the tools/knowledge. Check this

Ohh 30k kms and you haven’t replaced it hmm that’s great. Try giving kickstart to your battery. It seems like your battery is out of juice and also get it checked from the local technician.
Always make sure you start your car and drive it in your society atleast for about 5-10mins even doing it once in 10 days or in a week or so because this is what I am being doing since March’2020.
You might probably be using 35Ah battery it would be 35H or 35L. Anyways happy diwali fire grinning
Hope this helps.

These people are in biz post lockdown confused
Anyways happy to hear that everything is just fine but to be on the safer side keep checking your battery on regular basis since you have already driven it for more than 30k kms that too from 2015.

Buy Exide / Amaron from local shops.
Exide Milage 35Ah battery will cost abt 3600. Exide Matrix will be about 4200. Warranty 60m & 66months respectively.
Disconnect Autocop if fitted – if your car is not running regularly. It consumes battery in idle condition.
PS. Your local dealer will give fixed 800-1000 exchange value for your old battery.

500 rs just for a jump start? i got it charged externally with home pickup & delivery at 300 …guy used to take 200 earlier but everyone out to make a quick buck these days …when the battery goes into deep discharge state it’s better to follow @andromeda advice …car alternator won’t be able to juice it up with just occasional colony ka chakkar and u may end up in similar situation again wink

Stay away from Exide. Their quality has gone for a toss from last few years. I would recommend Amaron batteries. Amaron batteries are very durable and the quality is miles ahead than exide . You can get the battery replace through a battery dealer such as Amaron pitstop. You should also get a few hundred rupees for your old battery.

Another option is, order the battery through Batterybhai.com .they usually deliver the battery the same day and they would also help you install it. Prices on Batterybhai website is reasonable.

Service of Amron is good one. I replaced my Diesel Cars battery few weeks back. Replace locally. It’s cheaper than online and installation will be done by mechanic. They even exchange old battery(Additional 500-700less cost)

Amron is best, purchase from any retail outlet and any garage can fix it for a very small price. I always do the same.
